Herbal remedy Dear Sir, Gulf Times Gulf Times I read the article, "Cold facts about cough syrup" (, January 17). Let me share an experience I had with readers, hoping that it might help them too. I was prescribed cough syrup when I went a clinic to treat my dry cough last month. When there was no change after consuming a full bottle, I was given another brand of syrup together with a gargling solution on my next visit to the same clinic. This made me realise that cough syrup alone could not cure my illness. Aryvedic panacea After reaching home, I found a remedy for my cough in a small book called "" (Herbal Remedies) which I had bought many years ago during a bus journey in Kerala. It suggested two or three spoonfuls of pure ginger juice with the equal quantity of honey three times a day. It worked wonderfully and in just three days my cough was gone. Mohamed Ashraf Madiyari, PO Box No 260, Doha Use your prudence Dear Sir, (Gulf Times This is in reference to the letter "Fraudulent projects" , January 24). Many expatriates invest their savings in land and gold. Some of them are also lured into investing in teak plantations and similar projects, hoping for quick returns. They are also promised interest rates much higher than in banks for fixed deposits by a number of private groups. Besides, they often receive e-mails and messages of their winning huge sums in lotteries and strange business propositions, which, on the surface, seem tempting. But they should use prudence and do homework before putting their money in such schemes and offers. Otherwise they will be cheated, resulting in their losing the hard-earned savings.
